Look for Spiritual Nourishment

Mothers place great importance on the sustenance of their children, and if they see that one of them lacks stimulus, following the impulse of their hearts, they want to stimulate that particular child with different morsels… I do the same, following the impulse of my heart full of love for you.

But it is a question of spiritual nourishment, of unknown meals, which contain the spiritual food. This is the first difficulty that they encounter; they do not recognize the nourishment they need. I am eager for each one of you to accept nourishment with the substances that are more necessary. Thus, if a child of mine has need to know more of his nothingness, my heart provides him proofs of human impotence. If perhaps he has need to know the Divinity better, I am ready to give light to his dark mind. If someone else must grow stronger in the faith, I am quick to allow him to enter into consideration of the truths revealed to the Church. If some child finds himself in difficulties because he knows the Divine nourishment and wants to feed himself with it, but he is not able to have it because he is mentally distant from it, then I will take care to bring his plate closer, or if the case may be, of having him extend his hand so that he can take by himself what he already sees.

For that reason, believe that everything is offered to you as a means of sanctification and nothing must be considered as pastime or loss of energy. The spiritual food that I tell you about is all seasoned with God’s Will, and more so, this is the true substance, the true nourishment of the soul, and the rest is the necessary human complements for you to be able to capture this nourishment. Assimilate this substance and you will also become strong. I have already told you: I continue doing spontaneously what I physically did for Jesus at Nazareth, so that this role as Mother will be fulfilled in God’s Holy Will.

I cannot remain inactive while one of my beloved children does not definitively enter in my house. I am his aiding Mother; I want and must help so that everyone will be fortified in spirit up to the full height that must be reached because of the Love my Son has for all.

O privileged children, when you see me in Heaven I shall tell you all that my motherly heart cannot, for your own good, tell you now!

In the meantime, assure me of your affection, by everyone saying together the first part of my Prayer and three "Glory Be to the Father…" to the Blessed Trinity in gratitude for having given you a Mother who loves you intensely.
